Knowing God’s Will-Part 3

August 25, 2015

 

God’s will for our lives involves understanding people. 1 John 4:17-18 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”

It is not our love made perfect it is God’s love in us made perfect. When we see our lives and the lives of others from God’s perspective (that same God who said that He so loved the world that He gave His Son) you can see that God’s motive was love. This is the same God who lives in you, so therefore, that same love is in you. When you see things from an eternal perspective from God’s eyes and heart, this kind of love will grow in you that you never knew was possible. As this love is exercised in you your fear of people will begin to diminish.
